That wasn’t sarcasm. If you didn’t mean what you said, it wasn’t marked in any way. Smileys are on the right side of the reply box. Use them. Since what you said in your original post was more or less true, you weren’t laughing at the situation, you were expressing delight at them being shot. Big difference, it needs to be indicated…
Basically, it’s the difference between South Park making some intentionally cringe-worthy Steve Irwen jokes and then someone saying that Irwen deserved it.
Dude, grow a sense of humour! If we can’t laugh at the terrible things that go on in the world we will end up moping around being depressed all the time!
I laughed at this incident, I’ll definately say that. I don’t think he deserved it. EXCEPT that he didn’t hand over the money when a gun was pointed at him, but still no one deserves to be shot for that…
One guy gets injured due to stupidity in America and it is a tragedy. Thousands die in Darfur and few comment.
I’ve already donated money for the situation in Darfur and I am helping organize a fund-raiser to raise money to aid refugees…
It’s not wrong to joke around about this stuff but due to lack of any sarcasm indicators at all, and the fact that I was expecting some kind of comment like that from some of the grumpier forum members, I didn’t, and still don’t really, understand how it’s sarcasm.

Who gives a shit, it’s the internet, I’m going to play NWN2.
And last, for the sake of amusement, I’m going to blame all of the mass hysteria and violence on Sony. 200,000 units. WTF!!!
And the only people who got them are going to resell them and almost no one will want to buy them.
Reminds me of Pokemon cards when they were going out of fashion… Everyone stocks up and tries to sell, but everyone else is too busy doing the same thing or too poor to afford to pay premiums.
It’s plain pathetic to injure and even kill people because of that. Even if you’re a diehard gamer, will a couple of minutes waiting kill ya?
Not you, but it will kill others it seems…
LOL you obviously haven’t heard about the situation here. Every single store selling these has people that have been camped (literally, in tents and beds) outside of the store for DAYS.
